Using Firefox 25.0 Yahoo Edition yahoo! 1.24. When I access a website that creates a .pdf , I can VIEW the file just fine in the Tab window...but when I used the "download" icon (upper right menu bar), the file that is created on my iMac, my Win7PC, my Win8 laptop and/or my old winXP cannot be viewed with Adobe XI...it says the file is "damaged".

HOWEVER, when I use the "Save Page As" option (instead of the Tab's "download" icon) ... the downloaded file works just fine with Adobe XI.

Would seem to be a bug???
